I have compiled a list of five new Nepali movies that you should watch. All of them have different flavour and are of the quality comparable with Bollywood and Hollywood movies. The first must watch movie ‘Classic’ is a serious love story, ‘Chhaka Panja’ is a full-fledge comedy, the love story movie ‘Gajalu’ is a social drama, ‘Pashupati Prasad’ is beautifully told and based on reality, a teenage love story movie ‘Dreams’ appeal to the youth and older alike.
‘Classic’ featuring Namrata Shrestha and Aryan Sigdel in leading roles. Both the leading characters are blind and their acting is exceptional. That is the reason both Namrata and Aryan had won Best Actress and Best Actor awards respectively. Namrata was the undisputed Best Actress in every Nepali movie awards held this year. In almost all the awards, ‘Classic’ was the winner of the most awards.
Watch ‘Classic’ full movie here:
The biggest release of the year 2016, ‘Chhakka Panja’ impressed everybody — except for the actress, Samragyee RL Shah. The movie team is going to make a sequel of the movie ‘Chhakka Panja Feri’. The producer and director Deepak Raj Giri and Deepa Shree Niraula had confirmed the movie in making a few days earlier. Deepak wrote about the new movie and told that most of the actors will repeat with an addition of a couple of top actor and actress. It seems, the ‘top actress’ has refused to act in the movie. Deepak had told that in addition to Kedar Ghimire, Priyanka Karki, Barsha Raut, Buddhi Tamang, the team had reportedly approached ‘Prem Geet’ actor Pradeep Khadka and Samragyee RL Shah for the leading roles.
According to the latest report, the ‘Dreams’ debut actress, Samragyee RL Shah has refused the offer of Deepak Raj Giri. There is no information about whether Pradeep Khadka has accepted the role. Samragyee is planning to be featured in the movie titled ‘Intu Mintu’, a movie to be directed by choreographer Renasha Bantawa Rai. The shooting of ‘Intu Mintu’ and ‘Chhakka Panja Feri’ are scheduled to start in Baisakh. Samragyee’s refusal to act in the movie is told to be because of the conflict of schedule between the two.

About ‘Chhakka Panja’
One of the most successful movies in the history of Nepali movie industry, ‘Chhakka Panja’ is the hat trick of super hit movies by the team of Deepak Raj Giri, Deepa Shree Niraula and Nirmal Sharma. The movie prior to this movie, both starting with ‘Chha’, ‘Chha Ekan Chha’ and ‘Woda Number Chha’ both were comedy movies and were successful. The movie was pirated online and the production team have announced the official release soon. I will share it here as soon as it is uploaded by the official channel.
The movie is the directorial debut of comedy actress Deepa Shree Niraula and one of the most successful movies directed by a female director.
The life of the comedy actor Deepak Raj Giri is a full package or failures and successes. Let me summarize Deepak’s life in a three-point list:
- Failures and successes
- Friendship and family
- Collaboration and coordination
Before I go in details about each of the aspects of Deepak’s life, you can watch Deepak’s biography:
Failures and successes in Deepak Raj Giri’s life
When you look at the life of Deepak Raj Giri, it was nothing to laugh at. A comedy actor, Deepak, went through a very tough time while growing up. Some of the depressing moments of Deepak’s life:
- Mother died when he was 4. As a kid, Deepak didn’t know what mother’s love is.
- Failed SLC twice. The School Leaving Certificate (SLC) exam is considered the iron gate of our life. Being not able to pass the basic school exam is considered a total failure in Nepali context.
- Marriage aged 18. Having a responsibility of a wife at an young age is an added responsibility.
- Ran away from police training. He was about to become a police officer. But, the training proved to be too tough and he had to run away before the completion of the training.
- Kicked out of home – When he couldn’t get into job and won’t earn a living, his father decided to teach him the life lesson and asked him take his family and live on his own.
- The movie featuring Deepak Raj Giri in leading role, ‘Sundar Mero Nam’ flopped.

UPDATE: Watch ‘Chhaka Panja’ here:
The comedy actress Deepa Shree Niraula has debuted as a film director in an upcoming movie ‘Chhakka Panja’. In the comedy movie, Deepa won’t be seen on screen and will only be the director. The actors in the movie include Deepak Raj Giri, Kedar Ghimire, Jitu Nepal, Priyanka Karki, Barsha Raut, Buddhi Tamang, and Namrata Sapkota in main roles.
The shooting of the movie was inaugurated in an event held at Surya Vinayak temple in Bhaktapur on March 21. The shooting is expected to finish in a month. The movie is produced by the team that produced the previous hit movies ‘Chha Ekan Chha’ and ‘Woda Number Chha’. Although the main producers are Deepak, Deepa and Nirmal Sharma (Gaida) all the other main actors will also have certain amount of share in the movie.
